I frequently embed Baseball Reference data tables into my blogs or other posts, but since the upgrade to Twins Daily I haven't found one that works well on the new site. My old tables now show as a giant wall of code (some of my old blogs are darn near unreadable thanks to this) and any new tables I add from Baseball Reference are wrapped or squished to the point that I may as well just draw a picture of duck on the post (as it would be about as helpful).


I messed around with nearly every option B-ref had on one of my posts today (along with the editing options on here) and simply could not get a table to flood in correctly. I'm out of ideas (or I'm missing something easy) how do I get (readable) tables from B-ref back into posts?

It's one of the higher priority items on my list, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

Hey Brock, any progress on making tables paste cleanly into the blogs? I'm currently trying to make a blog post that includes several tables, but they're not displaying right. Anything I can do to fix that?
